Maserati's High-Performance Trofeo Line Coming to PH in 2021


Maserati completes its high-performance collection with the arrival of the Trofeo versions of the Ghibli and Quattroporte. Joining the Levante Trofeo, they become the pinnacle when it comes to luxury and performance for Trident brand.

Both the Ghibli and Quattroporte come with a 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 making 580 horsepower and 730 Nm of torque. The new engine, mated to an 8-speed automatic, enables both sports sedans to reach 326 km/h, while 0-100 km/h drop to 4.3 seconds for the Ghibli Trofeo and 4.5 seconds for the Quattroporte Trofeo.



Oh, and unlike the Levante Trofeo which has all-wheel drive, both the Ghibli and Quattroporte are available solely in rear-wheel drive giving it a sense of handling purity not available in the SUV. Integrated Vehicle Control (IVC) enhances driving dynamics even more with the addition of a “Corsa” mode. Corsa mode delivers even faster shifting, the air dampers made to hug the ground even more, and the safety systems like Traction Control and ESP restrained. The Corsa mode also introduces Launch Control.

The added performance for the Trofeo versions is communicated by new carbon fiber aero appendages, a new rear extractor, and new air duct trims on the fenders. The smaller Ghibli also gets two additional air vents on the hood to help it disperse engine heat. A red detail appears in the bottom edges of the side air vents, in the Trofeo naming profile on the side above the air ducts and in the lightning bolt on the Saetta logo on the pillar.



These changes are on top of the refresh for the rest of the Quattroporte and Ghibli line-up including new front grilles, new rear light clusters, and new carbon fiber inserts. Inside, the 2021 Quattroporte and Ghibli models receive a high-resolution 10.1-inch infotainment screen (up from 8.4 inches), a wireless phone charger, a new instrument cluster, and sport seats.

The 2021 Maserati models also receive Level 2 Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) which include Active Driving Assist, Lane Keeping Assist, Active Blind Spot Assist, Adaptive Cruise Control, Forward Collision Warning with Autonomous Emergency Braking, and more.

Maserati Philippines will bring in the revised Ghibli and Quattroporte alongside the high-performance Trofeo versions by next year.
